is that although the central banks have been taxing myself deposits, giving negative interest rates and by a depreciating currency, like 26% depreciation in last 10 years, the ecb would come out so openly. that is the shocking thing. and of course, people should be very worried about what happened in argentina. they froze deposits and withdrawals so that this could spread. as we look at the united states and europe and the way that the politicians are running the show, it'd heading for disaster. as simpson-bowles said, it is a cancer. there is a time wh bank deposits will be threatened if we continue even if the united states an europe -- people go to banks today thinking that it will be okay t. neil: that is a good point. not that it would be imminent or a near-term threat. but the fear is, here is a vulnerable little country where this is looking like a real fear. what about greece? what about portugal? >> i mean, this is a western country. the last i heard is that europe is part of the west. >> what is your fear? >> my fear is that if things go awry in this country, you could fin

on spending and taxes. so far, the game is not going very well. >> is the grand bargain dead? >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. >> the president has sounded equally pessimistic about bridging the divide. >> it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> while there's not much agreement there are plenty of ideas. washington is awash in budgets. no less than six plans are currently circulating on the hill. there is the plan from senate democrats, or the murray plan. it includes a one-to-one ratio of spending cuts and tax increaseses, as well as short-term stimulus. then there's the house democrats' budget, which pushes for $200 billion more in revenue than the plan proposed by their party members in the upper chamber and there is a congressional pr
-increases debt, raises taxes and never balances. the top republican for budgetary issues blasted the democratic plan. >> now we know why senator reid did not want to bring up a budget. the plan from the democratic leadership is a failed plan for america. it does not alter the debt course of america, has no growth component to it. it spends more and taxes more. reporter: but these budget resolutions only require a simple majority so there are enough democrats to pass the democrats' budget resolution without republican votes needed. and so there you have republicans in the senate, all they can do is bash the plan. they cannot actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our econo

. the european nation wants to tax all bank deposits up to 10% in order to secure a $13 billion bailout for the government. this move is unprecedented, it would basically allow the government to skim the bank accounts of every single person who makes a deposit into a cyprus bank account. if that is not enough, the country has closed all banks until thursday so if the decision is made there will not be anything anybody can do if they have money in the bank. now the world is bracing and waiting. what you should do with your money and with the impact could be. so excited to have you on tonight. university of chicago professor. what a team. let me start with you because i want you to set the scene for us because some people hear this and i think of cyprus is a tiny island, who cares. this could set off a chain reaction around the world, tell me why. >> if you have your bank deposits in another country that is shaky, italy, spain, portugal, and greece, you will say in my the next in line? so what we will be looking for over the next week or at any time or attention turns to a potential crisi
, no one read it before it was passed, and there's quite literally a trillion dollars worth of taxes in the affordable care act. it's underappreciated, there's a tax increase on the economy to turn into big job growth impacts and turn into big cost of insurance impacts, and that's what the fee is for, it's there to get the startup of the new exchanges going and to ensure the high cost paicialghts are covered into the insurance products. gerri: what's interesting because there's a lot of people asking for exclusions already, and am i surprised that thedownon representing auto workers doesn't want to pay this. boeing, as i mentioned before, they are asking for exclusions. suspect this is case where virtually anybody with more than say a thousand employees is going to be knocking on the white house doors asking for personal consideration? >> we, of course, you would. this is a cost of doing business, going to be substantial, and unanticipated cost. we saw this with all the regulations that have been put in place to make obamacare go. one by one, they show up and ask for exclusions becau
. if tomorrow you wake up and you find there is a 10% tax on your bank deposits, you will not be happy. if you're a politician in cyprus you're dealing with this and they're bank backing away from it. it was a bad idea in the first place. cyprus needs $10 billion from the european union and the european central bank and they have given others like greece hundreds of billions of dollars. so they're upset. the cypriot banks are insolvent. they're going, they will get a run. melissa: they are insolvent and they will get a run, yeah. >> but it's not cyprus's fault in my view. melissa: doesn't matter whose fault it is if it happens. julia, what is the outcome? what is the domino effect? which if there is a run on the banks there which there certainly will be, should i withdraw money from my bank here? >> no, i don't think so. the structure of the cypriot problem was quite unique the bank assets in cyprus are something like 730% of the country's gdp. it really is is a safe haven for russian investors. that is why when they needed money, there is always going to be some burden-sharing in a bailout. w

think we need to regulate, tax and legalize marijuana so the -- that's a huge reason, that's a -- i hi we immediate to -- legalize it, tax it, regulate it. >> this idea about useful but overused. i want to explore that idea. because i think that's been the -- that's sort of the line for a lot of people, christine quinn, said that before. previous communications. called it a useful tactic. should we just ban the tactic? should people not get stopped and frisked? >> i disagree. it is -- policing tactic that's been wildly overused. obviously in many cases using it in unconstitutional manner. look, now you need the reform, the approach, and we need a new police commissioner. this is the difference i have certainly with christine quinn who wants to keep ray kelly, ray kelly has been the architect of the overuse and stop and frisk. we need inspector general. when we have had in new york city, think about magnitude here. hundreds of thousands of more stops a year. there was never a vote on that. never a public debate. >> comes back to, again, the need for a new mayor. and a mayor who understa

the bulk of their payroll taxes go in their own personal accounts so sensible rules and diversification, as you get older more in short-term so you don't have to worry about stock market crashes. three counties in texas pulled out of social security, in the early 1980s. they didn't put a penny in the stock market. those folks today retiring with 50% to 200% more benefits than they would have had with social security. when it comes to investing mutual funds, sound insurers and the trust i'll trust that over what washington does. >> and morgan, that gives people a choice. shouldn't we have a choice. it's our money, right? >> i love that idea and i'm all for the concept of a choice which is why i do think we should be reforming social security but i don'ts think we should be scrapping it. >> what about the choice issue? shouldn't we have a choice? it's our money, supposed to be a trust fund sort of like a savings account. obviously it's not. >> in a perfect world i completely agree there should be a choice. but i'm serious what i've been saying, david. we've got to see that the people who
cypress? >> anything is possible. you know, i think the outrage over this deposit tax is about the honesty of the approach. if you think about it, citizens around the world suffer from that tax. in the united states, how long have we d 0 #% interest rates in the united states? how much money have savers lost who keep money in the bank because they have not received interest on depositsall these ars? what about prices? because the federal reserve does quantitative easing, food prices go up, gas prices up, and deposits lose value. at least with the tax in cypress, it was more honest. the government up front saying we're going to take your money. we're doing it secretly, and i think the honest approach is better. shibani: they make parallels in cypress, and what you mentioned happens here in the u.s., but the levy on bank deposits, this is what is causing a storm, and it's really getting people upset. are you concerned about any kind of precedence this could bring into the industry into europe and what it could do to banking confidence as a whole because when you start to have runs on banks a
